Interview: Rupert Kingston

Rupert Kingston has spent years in the makeup industry, working with amazing beauty brands, high profile celebrities and numerous magazines. He is not only an established makeup artist, but the Creative Director and Co-Founder of the new British beauty brand everyone is talking about. Yes, you guessed it ... Delilah.

Like most girls across the UK, I have fallen in love with Delilah (I'm actually obsessed with the brand's foundation and blusher!). So I was very excited when I got the chance to chat all things beauty with Rupert...

Rupert Kingston interview

What inspired you to work in the beauty industry? And how did your career journey begin?

I came from a painting and drawing background and was really inspired by theatrical makeup. Very early on (for a GCSE art project) I wanted to experiment with body painting, so I took a trip to London to visit Screenface. Walking into that little shop in Notting Hill was just inspiring, I bought some water based body paint and a bruise wheel (makeup for creating bruises); from then on I pursued a career in makeup!

I trained at the London College of Fashion in the early 90s, as it was one of the only makeup courses in Europe at the time. Once qualified I worked in television for a while, however it was only when I joined a creative agency that things really started to take off.

The Tuesday Tip: Get The Most From Free Beauty Sachets

Get The Most From Free Beauty Sachets

Free beauty sachets are everywhere. They are stuck in the pages of our favourite magazines, they are thrust at us while we shop and they are gifted to us when we make beauty purchases.

The main problem with beauty sachets is that its difficult to use them more than once. Either the entire sample spills out on first use or the remaining product turns nasty days after opening it.

The Lookbook: Fuchsia Lips

Revlon Fuschia Lipstick

Spring officially begins tomorrow and no makeup look compliments the season quite like the bold and bright fuchsia lip. A fuchsia lip looks gorgeous on any girl, so it's no surprise it was the look of choice at Carolina Herrera's SS15 runway show. The show's Head Makeup Artist, Diane Kendal, reportedly used five different fuchsia lipsticks to suit the individual skin tones of each model.
